Start Here

Hi there.

I’m Hugh Hollowell, and I like to stir things up.

I’m the founding pastor at Love Wins, a progressive faith community in Raleigh NC, and I helped found The Love Wins Community Engagement Center, where we seek to prove that the opposite of homelessness is community. And for some people, I’m the pastor of last resort.

In my free time, I’m also the editor of The Hughsletter, where I send five beautiful things to your inbox each Monday, and I speak around the country about building community as a method of social change.

About this blog

This is my blog, which I use as a forum for sharing ideas and stories about how to live humanely in this world in which we find ourselves, and to help us turn the world as it is into the world as it could be.

Most things I write about fall in the categories of Life Management, Faith & Justice, or Self-care, and I make the occasional posts that are completely personal.
